See what the stink is all about!

Summer in the Finger Lakes wouldn’t be the same without a stop at Fox Run Vineyards in August for the winery’s annual celebration of garlic and wine.

The 19th Annual Glorious Garlic Festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7, on the grounds at Fox Run Vineyards, located on the west side of Seneca Lake about 8 miles south of Geneva.

Admission free, the Garlic Festival will feature over 30 vendors including 12 garlic vendors offering their freshest, cool-climate garlic and garlic foods and products.

Other local vendors will showcase homemade ice cream, specialty oils and dipping sauces, hot sauces and marinades, maple syrup, local farmstead cheese, jewelry, artworks, garden tools and locally roasted coffee.

Activities will include glass blowing demonstrations by the Corning Museum of Glass and garlic-inspired cooking demonstrations and lectures.

Fabulous live music will include the favorite Dee Specker and her band The Lone Rangers as well as the Castle Street Band.

The Garlic Festival menu will include delicious, garlic inspired selections. And of course you can enjoy Fox Run Vineyards' award winning, hand-crafted wine.
